LEHMAN ENGLISH and THE CITY AND HUMANITIES PRESENT:

 

DE’SHAWN CHARLES WINSLOW

READING FROM HIS DEBUT NOVEL, IN WEST MILLS (BLOOMSBURY, 2019)

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2019 – STUDIO THEATRE


From the first page, Winslow establishes an uncanny authority and profound tone that belie the book’s debut status. The precision and charm of his language lure us in and soothe us…He paints a community so tightknit and thorough it becomes easy to forget the people in it don’t exist… Much of the story is told through dialogue, rich and truthful conversations among characters reminiscent of those in August Wilson’s plays, expressing so much more than what is on the surface." - The New York Times Book Review

"This debut novel flits from 1941 to 1987 charting the life of Knot, a smart, obstinate woman in her twenties who teaches school in a mostly African-American town in North Carolina…The town is full of secrets, and the novel rollicks through revelations of true parentage and hidden lives." - The New Yorker

"Winslow’s quietly glorious novel is dedicated “To the reader,” and it engages on a level that’s appropriately intimate… In this tiny, deeply interwoven community, friends are more like siblings, siblings compete for the same lovers, babies given up for adoption don’t land far from their birth home, and everyone has a stake in shared secrets – sometimes handed down, sometimes withheld – across generations." - Boston Globe
